The Great Spirit continued and spoke to Moses, saying, “Go to Pharaoh and deliver this message: Thus saith the Great Spirit, ‘Let my people go, that they may serve me.'”
But if Pharaoh refuses to let them go, I will bring forth a plague of frogs upon his borders. These frogs shall emerge from the river and infiltrate every corner of Egypt. They will enter houses, bedchambers, beds, the houses of servants, and even the ovens and kneading troughs. Frogs will be everywhere, upon Pharaoh, his people, and his servants.
So Moses conveyed the words of the Great Spirit to Aaron, saying, “Stretch forth your hand with your rod over the streams, rivers, and ponds, and let frogs come up upon the land of Egypt.”
And Aaron did as commanded. He stretched out his hand over the waters, and the frogs emerged, covering the entire land of Egypt.
The Land of Egypt (Northeast Africa Today) Was Covered with Frogs
The magicians of Egypt, with their enchantments, also brought forth frogs upon the land. The situation became unbearable, and Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, asking them to entreat the Great Spirit to remove the frogs. He promised to let the people go so they could offer sacrifices unto the Great Spirit.
Moses responded to Pharaoh, saying, “Glorify yourself over me. When do you want me to pray for you, your servants, and your people, that the frogs may be removed, leaving only in the river?”
Pharaoh replied, “Tomorrow.” And Moses agreed, saying, “As you wish, so that you may know that there is none like our Great Creator, the Great Spirit.”
The frogs departed from Pharaoh, his houses, his servants, and his people, remaining only in the river. Moses and Aaron left Pharaoh’s presence, and Moses cried out to the Great Spirit concerning the frogs that had plagued Pharaoh.
According to Moses’ words, the Great Spirit acted, and the frogs died out of the houses, villages, and fields. The people gathered the dead frogs in heaps, and the stench permeated the land.
However, when Pharaoh saw that the frogs had ceased, he hardened his heart and did not listen to Moses and Aaron, as the Great Spirit had foretold.
Gnats and Flies Sent into Egypt
And the Great Spirit spoke again to Moses, saying, “Tell Aaron to stretch out his rod and strike the dust of the land, so that it may become lice throughout all of Egypt.” Aaron obeyed, extending his hand with the rod and striking the earth, turning it into lice that infested both humans and beasts. The dust of the entire land became lice, but the magicians, despite their enchantments, could not replicate this miracle. Thus, lice covered everyone and everything in Egypt.
Seeing this, the magicians acknowledged the power of the Great Creator, saying to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of the Great Creator.” However, Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened, and he did not heed their words, as the Great Spirit had foretold.
The Great Spirit spoke to Moses once more, instructing him to rise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh at the water. Moses was to declare, “Thus saith the Great Spirit, ‘Let my people go, that they may serve me.'” If Pharaoh refused, swarms of flies would be sent upon him, his servants, and his people, and into their houses. The houses of the Egyptians would be filled with swarms of flies, and the land would be plagued by them.
The Children of Akobe Were Spared from the Plagues
However, the land of Goshen, where the Bantus dwelled, would be spared from the swarms of flies. This division would serve as a sign that the Great Spirit was present in the midst of the earth and that a distinction existed between the people of the Great Spirit and the Egyptians.
The next day, a grievous swarm of flies infiltrated the house of Pharaoh, the houses of his servants, and the entire land of Egypt. The land became corrupted because of the swarm of flies.
Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, proposing that they should sacrifice to their Great Creator within the land. Moses objected, stating that it would be inappropriate to sacrifice the abominations of the Egyptians before their eyes, as they would surely react with hostility.
Instead, Moses proposed that they should embark on a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the Great Spirit, following His commands. Pharaoh reluctantly agreed, saying, “I will let you go to sacrifice to the Great Spirit your Great Creator in the wilderness. However, do not go too far away. Pray for me.”
Moses Asks Pharaoh to “STOP LYING!”
Moses assured Pharaoh that he would plead with the Great Spirit to remove the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, his servants, and his people the next day. Yet, Moses warned Pharaoh not to deceive them again by refusing to let the people go and worship the Great Spirit.
Moses left Pharaoh’s presence and entreated the Great Spirit, who, in accordance with Moses’ words, removed all the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, his servants, and his people. Not a single fly remained.
But Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened, and he continued to refuse to let the people go, as the Great Spirit had foreseen.
As we read, we have to imagine in our minds the Great Creator and His Great Spirit, slowly destroying Egypt with destructive spirits. These destructive evil spirits are disrupting the Egyptian economy, livelihood, and daily living to a degree the nation will be destroyed if they do not repent. The problem is that their appointed leader, the king of Egypt, will not allow them to repent because the Great Creator is laying his hand on him and his nation, for abusing the Bantu, His people. This is a subtle form of reparations the people of Egypt, and even us today, do not recognize takes place when oppressive nations oppress the children of Akobe.
